The Flowers of Evil: AND Paris Spleen by Charles Baudelaire
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Sex and death, rebellion, corruption - the themes of Baudelaire's sensual poems sparked outrage upon their 1857 publication. This unique collection captures the fevered spirit of the transition from Romanticism to Modernism with definitive translations of 51 poems from Flowers of Evil, plus 14 prose poems from the posthumously published Paris Spleen.

A leading figure of the Decadent movement, he exercised enormous influence over subsequent poets and authors. Translator Walter Fowlie was the James Duke Professor of French at Duke University.
